Lety did the makeup for my sister, my mom, my mother-in-law and myself for my wedding. She made us all look beautiful and the service was a reasonable price! I gave her a picture of what I wanted for my hair and she made it happen. The makeup didn't feel heavy and lasted all day/night until I washed my face. Lety gave us a timeline that allowed us to be ready and relaxed the day of the wedding. I would definitely recommend her for your big day!

I'm always so iffy when meeting with a new makeup artist. Many cake it on, some do too minimum or don't have the same vision of the makeup you wanted in your head. It's always a roll of the dice. But Annaliza was AMAZING! I'm so used to touching my makeup up myself or blending it better after I get my makeup done cause I can get so OCD over it, but with Anna everything was blended, smooth, & exactly what I had requested. She may be more of a perfectionist than me! Even if it was a tweak at your eyebrows, or a blemish not completely covered, she was on top of it looking for any faults. Ending result, there were none! It was the first time I tried to go out of my way to make sure my makeup stayed exactly how it was done, didn't change a thing. And of course, she has the sweetest, most down to earth, bubbly personality! She makes you feel completely comfortable,very easy to talk to, and always able to keep the conversation going. I completely adore her, by far the best makeup artist I've gotten to work with! So much so, I booked her again tomorrow! I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you Annaliza!

I requested Sabrina to do my makeup for my wedding, I do not wear makeup at all and didn't really know what to expect but I knew what and how I wanted to look. She was very professional she was on time. She came in setup and didn't waste time. She did three people in a little over 2 hours. We were all women of color and she match our skin tone beautifully! Every one loved our make up and lashes. Thank you for making my day that much more special.

I hired Ashley for my October 5th wedding. She did an amazing job! We did a trial ahead of time and she came to my place. She arrived on time and was so friendly. I immediately felt comfortable. Then once I saw my makeup I knew I found my makeup artist for my wedding! I wanted my wedding makeup to be natural but also look good for photos. Ashley gave me the exact look I wanted! Not only is Ashley talented and professional, she is really genuine and kind. I love her and her work! I highly recommend her. My wedding makeup was flawless and natural looking and the best part was that my makeup stayed that way until I took it off at 1:00am! My makeup withstood the tears, laughter, hugs, smooches, eating, drinking, dancing, and all the photo taking! I couldn't believe it when looked in the mirror when we finally got back to the hotel, it truly looked like my makeup had just been applied (I had her do airbrush makeup- airbrush makeup is amazing and the application process is so relaxing)! AMAZING! So needless to say, I highly recommend Ashley. Oh- also- Ashley provided makeup services for some of the ladies in my bridal party. Each of them had their own requests for their specific makeup style/look and all of them were also super happy with Ashley's work! I can't say enough about Ashley. You won't be disappointed she is a true artist!!!!!

I am so happy to have found Julie as my makeup artist. If there was one thing I was really stressed about for my wedding it was the makeup. I wanted to look like me and not a cakey overdone mess. I was so worried about it that I made up my mind, after already acquiring quotes which included Julie, that I would do my own makeup even though I knew that would stress me out even more. But my bridesmaids still wanted there makeup done so I went on the hunt again and luckily Julie was still available. I set up a consultation with Julie and told her the change of plans that it would be for my bridesmaids only and after seeing her work on my sister who very rarely wears makeup I was so impressed and excited that I changed my mind once again. I absolutely loved loved loved my makeup I was so happy to look like myself but just a little more glam haha. I felt comfortable and confident. She was so sweet and flexible especially at the end when we had to add more girls and some wanted specifics. Her and her assistant were so great and I would definitely definitely recommend and book Julie again. :)

I hired Ruba to do my makeup for a photoshoot and we met for the trial makeup to get an idea of what look I wanted to go with, she was AMAZING. The makeup looked stunning and I'm soooo excited for the photoshoot! She listened to what I wanted and made her own suggestions as the professional. Hire Makeup by RUBA, you will not be disappointed. The makeup was high quality and I am very satisfied.

Alyssa was wonderful. She was punctual, she knew what she was doing and she did a great job. I was worried that my hair style wouldn't stay since I don't have a lot of hair. She worked miracles and was able to get waves in my hair that looked great all through the evening event(she did my hair at 1:30) and into the following day. Her makeup was perfect! This was a bollywood party so we were wearing very blingy clothes. She was able to do the makeup without it looking like it was TOO much, and at the same time it was not too light. She did a little bit of a dramatic touch, but it was subtle. The makeup stayed late into the evening as well. She was punctual and gave really good value for the price. I hope to have Alyssa do our makeup again for our next event.

We needed someone to do stage makeup for my 15 year old and MissO was perfect! She made my daughter look stage ready without the "caked on" look; on the contrary the makeup looked quite natural. She's very professional, friendly and talented and her price point is reasonable. I'd definitely recommend her and am looking forward to hiring her again soon for our family photo shoot.

Paru did my makeup and I was astonished with my makeup. I was able to send her a few looks that I was hoping for and the results were miraculous. I don't wear makeup on a daily basis and know almost nothing about makeup, Paru managed to give me little pointers while she was working. I felt extremely comfortable going from no makeup what so ever to having a whole face of make up that turned heads the whole night, and got many complements. The amount of variety Paru has to offer is incredible she went from doing my friends makeup to my makeup to another girls makeup one after the other and each look was different and what each girl asked for. I'm giving Paru five stars because this woman is unbelievably talented and there isn't anything negative I can say about our session. Her prices are very reasonable, and she is always happy to share information and tips.

Sandra has done my makeup for any occasion that required for me to look FLAWLESS! And I have left her chair flawless every single time! Her skills are on point, and she listens to my wants And needs for that particular occasion. Before her, I was always left unsatisfied with my make up (I'm very picky and extremely OCD and self conscious about my skin) but thank god I met this beauty guru, she trully is the best!

Rani is hands down the most professional MUA I've ever had the pleasure of working with. She was communicative every step of the way from beginning to end. She's reliable and a joy to work with. And then the makeup: I LOVED the work she did – she captured the exact look I wanted and needed. I'm already looking forward to working with her again on the next photoshoot!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do wedding makeup artists cost?

A wedding means love, celebration and tons of wedding photos. Professional wedding makeup artists have you looking your best on your big day and forever after in your wedding photos. The national average cost for a wedding makeup artist is $70-$100, although this price can increase based on your location, the extent of the makeup services and the reputation of the makeup artist. Most wedding makeup artists offer discounts to brides who book group services for their maids, mothers and flower girls at the same time. Wedding makeup artists who also do wedding hair usually offer package rates for hair and makeup combos. Here are some examples of average wedding makeup pricing:

  • Bridal makeup: $85-$125. Pricing often includes full face, eyes, lips, brows and false eyelashes. Airbrush makeup may be an additional $20 or more.
  • Bridal hair and makeup: $150-$200.
  • Bridesmaid and bridal party makeup: $50-$100 per person.
  • Bridesmaid hair and makeup: $100-$150.
  • Flower girl makeup: $25-$35.
  • Trial sessions: $60-$120, depending on the makeup artist. Some charge their full rate and others charge a partial rate for trial makeup services.
  • Hourly rates to stay on and keep makeup touched up throughout reception: $35-$75 per hour.
  • Travel fees: 50 cents to $1 per additional mile beyond a set radius — such as 50 miles.

Do I need a makeup artist for my wedding?

There are no rules around your wedding day, and that means it’s your choice whether to have a wedding makeup artist. If you’re on the fence about hiring a wedding makeup artist, consider the pros and cons. Some women decide against a wedding makeup artist to save money. The national average cost for a wedding makeup artist is $70-$100, which is an expense some women prefer to do without. Other women just don’t love wearing makeup. Some brides have friends or family members who are talented makeup artists willing to provide their services. If you choose not to have a wedding makeup artist, be sure to do at least two trial runs of your makeup look well before the wedding day to avoid any morning-of panic.

On the other hand, a wedding makeup artist can make the bride feel pampered and confident, giving her a flawless, fabulous look for the ceremony and reception and in wedding photos. For brides who are uncomfortable with heavy makeup, many wedding makeup artists usually excel at the natural look. Many brides consider wedding makeup part of the ritual and tradition of the ceremony, a shared experience with the entire bridal party. Ultimately your choice of whether to hire a wedding makeup artist should be based on what will make you feel most confident and happy.

How do you choose the right makeup artist for your wedding?

A wedding makeup artist can ensure a flawless look on your big day. Finding the perfect person isn’t all about price, though. Here are tips for choosing the right makeup artist for your wedding:

  • Research before reaching out. Wedding makeup artists should have an online presence with portfolios of their work. Find someone with an aesthetic you love.
  • Read reviews. You want a wedding makeup artist who’ll be on time, do beautiful work, and add a positive vibe to your day. Pay attention if previous clients report bad experiences with a makeup artist.
  • Consider skin tones. If your bridal party has a range of skin tones, make sure your wedding makeup artist and assistants are experienced and talented working with everyone.
  • Is your top pick available on your date? If so, put down a deposit to secure their services.
  • Confirm rates and payment. Clearly discuss prices and payment plans, and sign a detailed contract so there are no surprises on your wedding day.

How much should you tip a wedding makeup artist?

Wedding makeup artists ensure you and your bridal party are looking your best bright and early on your wedding day. Tipping a wedding makeup artist for their hard work is standard practice, and is also greatly appreciated. A tip of 15 percent to 20 percent of the total bill is appropriate. You may consider tipping extra if the makeup artist or someone on their team went above and beyond — for example, squeezing in Aunt Martha at the last second or redoing a flower girl’s hair free of charge after she dunked it in the fountain.

A gratuity is a reflection of a job well done, so if the wedding makeup artist was late, did a shoddy job or didn’t provide all the services you negotiated, you are not required to tip. Talk with your wedding makeup artist prior to the event to ask how they prefer payment and gratuity to be handled. Can you pay by credit card the day of the event and include a tip then? Do you need to pay in cash the day of the event? Find out ahead of time how to manage payment for services so you can be prepared with cash or credit cards as needed. Even better, delegate the task of payment to someone in your bridal party so you can just enjoy your day.
